1887 Alcoholic Alcoholism Allegory Broadsheet Cross Bones Evil Handbill Michigan Movement Propaganda Ride Skull Slide Temperance Movement Toboggan Tomb


EDITORS COMMENTS
This print titled "TEMPERANCE MOVEMENT, 1887. Devils Toboggan Slide" takes us back to a significant moment in American history. The image showcases a powerful allegory of the evils of alcoholism during the late 19th century temperance movement. The focal point is an imposing toboggan slide shaped like a devil's skull and tomb, representing the destructive nature of excessive drinking. The slide is adorned with text and imagery that serve as propaganda against alcohol consumption, emphasizing sin and death through symbols like crossbones. Published as a broadsheet handbill in Kalamazoo, Michigan in 1887, this piece was part of a larger effort to raise awareness about the detrimental effects of alcohol on society. It aimed to persuade individuals to join the temperance movement and advocate for sobriety. The stark contrast between light and shadow adds depth to the composition while enhancing its ominous atmosphere. This photograph serves as both historical documentation and artistic expression, capturing an important chapter in America's social reform movements. As we gaze upon this thought-provoking image from Granger Art on Demand's collection, we are reminded of how far our society has come in addressing issues related to substance abuse while acknowledging that there is still work to be done.
